    Hey man great work by the way,

    I would love the option to have it announce updates etc in Discord. or maybe some option features even for a bot within Discord? Ideas are welcomed.

    Thanks much!

    There are some higher priority items on the list that I need to handle first, but the more people that want this, the more likely it is to get done. =)

    Actually, I think this is a pretty neat idea considering that there is not ingame RCON. You could maybe associate a bot and make server announcements with it and allow players to "enter custom text" that will come from the bot in the discord channel.

    So I was bored and did a little research on how this could be implemented. It looks like the the easiest way to implement this is to have the user create a bot on their discord channel and copy the "Token". The CAT can have a spot in settings to paste this "Token" which will allow commands to be issued to the bot.
    I also found this article that walks you through the entire code:
    https://cabconmodding.com/threads/c-tutorial-how-to-make-a-discord-bot.1165/

    This is the Discord.net Documentation that also shows implementation and commands:

    I hope this helps! Thanks Trekkan!

    that is one of the reasons i have used Proms program, but he no longer supports it. I would love to have this feature as well and am more than happy to donate to the cause. Kind of a must have with no rcon available right now. Going to try your program out today, and thanks for the hard work up to this point. I am sure much appreciated by many server owners.
